One day I worked with two Korean girls who told me about sheet face masks, and I was intrigued. My normal face-plan is pretty low-key: lotion after morning shower, face cleaning wipe at night. But these masks seemed easy and quick enough to try out.
The verdict? They’re mostly unnecessary to life, but I love them! One of my favorite features of these masks has nothing to do with beauty… I find great joy in putting them on at night and quietly walking up behind Tyler as he’s engrossed in some sort of nerdy finance computer coding.
Beyond scaring Tyler and weirding out Mason and Milo, really truly these are awesome to use. First, they force me to take a moment to sit–but I don’t really have to sit if I want to be doing something (thanks eye holes!). Second, they smell good. And most of all, they make my face feel nice when I take them off. Mini-spa at home!
If you haven’t yet discovered the unnecessary but wonderfulness these masks bring, you’re in luck because they seem to be popping up all over the place these days. I found my first ones at T.J.Maxx, but I really love The Face Shop and other places around the city. Or there’s always Amazon.
I also highly recommend trying the cartoon faces to really step up the unnecessary/scare factor (bonus points for Snapchat).
As a one step further to my addiction, I tried this charcoal peel mask. Not quite as refreshing, but almost as much fun in the removal process.
